Last week, I posted about this upcoming Action-drama series, "Untitled Jersey City Project" (check it here) and in case you missed it, lemme share a brief introduction about this highly anticipated series.
The story is set amidst the fast-developing Jersey City waterfront, just across the river from Manhattan. A shining new city is being built on the edge of this gritty town. But while the glass office towers and condos are sleek and new, the rules of the game haven't changed one bit.
Everyone here has something to gain - money, fame, power. Or they can lose big. Or they could end up dead.
The Story revolves around the architect, Frank George and his partner Ray Rahne who both worked hard to get their small, progressive architecture office in New York City to the next level. And then they had this big project in which they are about to design a new stadium complex across the Hudson in rough and tumble Jersey City.
Their client is notorious developer Larry Tyerman. Tyerman is a bare-knuckle negotiator lurking inside a bespoke suit, with connections to everyone - and anyone - with the power to push his projects through. Union bosses, politicians, even the local cops - everybody owes him a favor. And nobody wants to be the guy standing in his way, not with this much money on the line. Rumor has it that the stadium project is truly make or break for Tyerman. Desperation hasn't made him a more patient man.
Untitled Jersey City Project is a unique experiment in the development of an entertainment concept: it’s a work-in-progress television drama. The eight short-form episodes of Untitled Jersey City Project are fragments from a larger story, with many of the story threads left unresolved.
Things are getting so intense and I have watched 3 episodes already. The story is getting more intense indeed and it starts to confuse me in a way that it challenges me to explore and to dig more about it.
Episode 1 : Frank received a cryptic call from Ray , before Ray's fatal plunge from the 39th floor of the construction site. Everything remains a mystery and Frank has to solve the story behind his partner's mysterious death.
Episode 2 : The episode flashes back here and introduces two new characters, Larry Tyerman which is obviously the main antagonist in the series and Jane Kaplan, who works as a writer/ reporter at The Ledger.
Episode 3 : Frank and Ray attend an awards dinner for real estate mogul Larry Tyerman. After a few too many drinks, Ray risks more than just the job when he decides now is the perfect time address Tyerman’s questionable ethics. Things are quite getting clearer to me and it really excites me.
Untitled Jersey City Project is a production of Studio Progress Films in association with FX and is not the official title of the series. It is literally an untitled drama and is in need of a title. Interestingly, I went over their official web page and they are asking for some Title Proposals from their followers. Will buzz more about this drama and its progress soon. For the mean time, watch the rest of the episodes in Youtube.
By the way don't forget to leave your feedback about the video and let me now how much you've enjoyed it too. Thanks
